Teaching and learning
We develop our qualifications according to our Code of Practice (effective from the November 2017 examination series onward). The Code of Practice sets out our approach to assessment and demonstrates our aim of transparency in our dealing with those who use our assessments. For examinations taken before the November 2017 examination series see the previous version of our Code of Practice published in 2008.
We regularly review and update Cambridge programmes and qualifications to make sure they reflect the latest developments in teaching and learning and meet schools’ needs around the world.
In 2016 we commissioned UK NARIC, the national agency in the UK for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills, to carry out in-depth, independent benchmarking studies to compare Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level to the UK education system. The studies found Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level to be robust qualifications that are comparable to the standard of UK GCSE and A Level.
Our quality management system
Cambridge Assessment International Education has held ISO 9001:2008 certification since January 2008. ISO 9001 certification confirms the effectiveness of our quality management system. The management system and activites delivered from our Cambridge offices are regularly independently assessed to make sure we continue to meet the requirements of the ISO9001 standard and continue to improve our quality management system.
We are recognised for the provision of a number of our qualifications by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) the UK government's regulator for awarding organisations and regulated qualifications in England. We are also recognised in Wales by Qualifications Wales and in Northern Ireland by CCEA.
